Presented by PAALF, MORE, & TOC

Doors open at 6:30pm

Literary icon and poet Haki Madhubuti (also known as Don L. Lee) lived his life as an act of defiance. His poetry, written unapologetically in black dialect and slang, began appearing in the 1960s. Echoes of it can still be heard in Rap and Hip Hop. An advocate of independent Black institutions, Madhubuti founded the Third World Press in 1967, and he established the Institute of Positive Education in Chicago, a school for black children, in 1969. He changed his name to Swahili in 1974. Madhubuti is in town for the national conference of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs, and agreed to do a free, community-based reading. He will be signing a selection of his 19 books after the event.

Doors open at 7pm

Trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini present their new duo project, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition to create a uniquely intimate collaboration. The duo’s global take on music is largely expressed through the distinct compositional voice of Faquini, with occasional lyrics penned by Cressman. Their original material features songs in three different languages and encompasses a vast spectrum of musical ground. With the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone and two-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese, Cressman & Faquini weave their musical voices together to create a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble.

EAST FOREST has been the leader of underground ‘sound healing’ ceremonies around the world since 2008. Using music as a tool, he has trailblazed the field of organic tech, building bridges between the digital and natural world. Being fully independent and playing in the private shadows allowed the sound of East Forest to emerge: an emotional and spacious musical lexicon with a sound that took shape out of a practical need to play solo for five to six hours while guiding a room full of listeners in deep meditation. Live looping and layered keyboard melodies filled the musical space while angelic vocals and original field recordings floated above.“East Forest is tied to both nature and to everyday urban life, giving it the qualities of a sort of ethereal and mystical modern-day fairytale. It’s just blissful.”(NPR)

The critically acclaimed progressive string band Nefesh Mountain ingeniously blends Bluegrass and Old-Time musical stylings with cultural influences from their own Jewish heritage, reimagining a world of American roots music that is all their own. Leaders and husband and wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff are at the heart of the band, pioneering this new genre alongside band members Alan Grubner, Dave Goldenberg, and Max Johnson.

Their music, called “Highly eclectic” by Rolling Stone, and “Crisp, refined, timeless Bluegrass” by The Bluegrass Situation is complete with the kind of musically adept string virtuosity and through composed arrangements one would hope for from a dynamic newgrass band. Their original songs, whether drawing influence from the Bluegrass, Old-Time, Celtic, Jazz, or folk traditions are all “Songs of the heart” for writers Eric and Doni, and collectively work to spread the beautiful messages of diversity, oneness, and equality for our world today.
